DCD Review Team Meetings

Due to a significant influx of permit applications, responses to requests for 
staff review meetings may take longer than normal.

Comprised of planners, engineering tech analysts, permit technicians, and various DCD subject matter experts, the DCD Review Team, evaluates permit applications and permit document submittals. 

As detailed below, these team members are also available via lobby visits, staff consultations, hourly meetings, and pre-application meetings. They provide general land use, building construction, stormwater mitigation, environmental and critical area information.


DCD Virtual or In-Person Appointments

Customers are provided a free, dedicated 15-minute question and answer session with a member of the DCD Review Team. These sessions are first-come, first-served, but you may opt to book a specific time for your virtual or in-person appointment.

Staff Consultation - A by-appointment, 30-minute consultation meeting with a cross-functional mix of DCD Review Team members to help you identify potential requirements for a specific project. Review Team members provide general advice on your proposed project and possible requirements. A bulleted list of comments shared during the meeting is noted and provided to the applicant. 

Hourly Meeting
 - Focused on a specific area of the code, DCD Review Teams research your area of interest and meet to discuss on an hourly basis. This is an option suited for thoroughly reviewing a specific area of concern. 

Pre-Application Meeting 
- By appointment, this is a customer-scheduled meeting with DCD experts to provide a detailed analysis of your proposed project or issue. Review team members review the proposed project before the meeting, and a detailed meeting summary is provided to the customer after the meeting. 

Please click here to access the Permit Application Portal 
landing page to begin the process of submitting your meeting request.

Follow the prompts to make your meeting choice, complete your information, and make your payment for the meeting. A request for either of these three options requires payment to be made along with the request.
